Everyone who knows this blog knows there are some things some things I will never stop defending. America, and our founding principles, the right to self-defense, Individualism, the right to life, and my Confederate ancestors who fought only when forced to in self-defense by an over reaching Lincoln administration that cared more about centralizing power in the federal union than our Constitution. I understand that some of my most admired Conservatives today would disagree with me, that is fine. I have nothing but respect for them, but, I, after studying the War of Northern Aggression for many years, I can come to no other conclusion than to say the blow struck against state sovereignty was one of the worst ever dealt our republic. And one we are still suffering from today.
The Left has always used every opportunity to hijack causes to destroy the right of self-governance, and The Lincoln administration was no different. As one historian put it there was an overriding difference between Confederate president Jefferson Davis, and President Lincoln. Davis was willing to destroy the union to save the Constitution, Lincoln was willing to destroy the Constitution to save the union. Now, I understand people will ask what would the Constitution be without the union?. I would counter by asking what our union is without our Constitution? I would ask y’all to ponder that question, to imagine it. But, look around, we already know what a post-Constitutional America looks like. Think about that. Really think about it. Then think about this. Many members of Team Lincoln believed in Higher Law, that is they believed that the Constitution was NOT the ultimate law of the land. Again, think about that!
So, I post this to hopefully make you think, and study our history. And, with nothing but love, respect and the deepest admiration for every true Conservative who I fight alongside every day to make this nation what our Founders intended, I post the following images. Three are of my Great-Great Grandfathers who fought for the Confederacy. Lt. William A. Allen, Co. G 56th Georgia Infantry, who lost an eye at Vicksburg and came back to fight some more, and Pvt. Martin C. Mewborn, Co. I 63rd Georgia Infantry, wounded fighting Sherman at Kennesaw Mountain. The third is Pvt. Allen Dean McWhorter of the 4th South Carolina Cavalry who went blind in a Union prison camp at Point Lookout. The fourth image is my way of honoring the Confederate soldiers who fought in the War Between the States.
